    I am a southern CA resident, am i able to make a down payment and my first month payment for my magic key renewal so my monthly is lowered?

    Hi there, Joanna!

    Oh boy! I’m actually a little jealous that you get to pay off your Disneyland Resort Magic Key pass with monthly payments. As an out-of-state Magic Key holder, that is a benefit that makes me contemplate a move to sunny California.

    Up to 30 days before their pass expiration, Magic Key holders may renew to any available Magic Key pass that they are eligible for. California residents may choose to pay for the renewed pass all at once or to pay it off in monthly payments. The monthly payments are at a 0% interest rate. So although the monthly payment amount will be more without a down payment, the total amount paid will still be the same whether a payment plan is used or not. For more information and to discuss other options, you may call the Magic Key Holder phone line.

    If you happen to have available funds now that you would have preferred to use as a down payment, you may choose to set that money aside for use in paying for your pass. If it is in an interest-earning bank account, you can even earn a little money off of it while it is there. When it is time to make monthly payments on your pass, you may take some of that money to pay yourself back. This way, you effectively lower your monthly payment relative to new money needed to make payments by reimbursing yourself with the saved money reserved for paying for your pass.

    Tony’s Tip: To keep up with the latest Magic Key holder news and events, be sure to follow the official Disneyland Resort Magic Key accounts on Instagram and Facebook.

    Have a magical year visiting the Disneyland Resort, Joanna!
